Changes to the DGR shipping requirements in this Addendum include:
  • An added exception for hand sanitizer in Section 2.5 "Dangerous Goods in Operator's Property." 
  • An added exception for COVID-19 vaccines containing GMOs or GMMOs in Section
The first Addendum also updates various state and operator variations, including the addition of a new variation for Federal Express, FX-10, which reads: 

FX-10 Shipments containing accessible dangerous goods (ADG) and inaccessible dangerous goods (IDG) that are dropped off at staffed FedEx U.S. locations must be processed using a FedEx or third-party automation system, not paper airbills or air waybills.
